Intel has new chips with some odd model numbers

Intel is just in the middle of its regular processor release cadence but that doesn't mean it won't be launching some new chips in between.

FreedomPop, Intel’s Wi-Fi first smartphone takes on Google Fi

FreedomPop, Intel’s Wi-Fi first smartphone takes on Google Fi

Google's Project Fi was more than the MVNO that people have been expecting, at least based on earlier rumors. Instead of a simple, directly mobile service that would compete with carriers, Project Fi made a tempting proposition: a service that automatically switched back and forth between paid cellular connection and free Wi-Fi depending on the latter's availability. That is the new paradigm that FreedomPop and Intel are chasing after in a partnership that will see not only a new service to compete with Project Fi but a new smartphone as well.
